    My 2011 Double Cab Tacoma is getting a MD75 installed on it today. Any tips would be appreciated. Should I add weight to the bed? If so how much & what would u recommend to use? Also has anyone made a dolly up for it, if so do u have specs & pics

    Thanks Bill

    throwing a few bags of salt or quikcrete behind the rear axle never hurts

    The Plow Selector on Snow Dogg's site will tell you. I selected what I assume were the correct specs based on your description above and it only recommended a MD68 for that truck. I'm sure you will be fine with the MD75 but their minimum ballast recommendation for the MD68 on your truck was 790 so you will want to get some weight back there. I use sand tubes from the home improvement stores. They are in a heavy duty bag and weigh 70 lbs each.
